COLUMBIA, SC (WCSC/WIS) - Gov. Henry McMaster hosted a roundtable discussion on the potential impacts of President Donald Trump's infrastructure plan on the state.

It included James Ray, Special Advisor to U.S. Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao for Infrastructure, South Carolina Department of Transportation Secretary Christy Hall, local government officials, and business leaders from around the state.

"If and when President Trump's infrastructure plan becomes law, South Carolina is going to be one of the first states to submit a cohesive plan that addresses our needs in a way that will benefit as many South Carolinians as possible," McMaster said.
